It’s hard to believe that I’m writing my last message as chapter president. This year has flown by. I look back over the past year with great pride in our organization’s accomplishments. We have enrolled new members even in spite of a national recession. We have recognized two new SR/WA’s this year, while several other candidates have made great strides toward winning the designation. Our education program has been stellar. We have presented some very successful courses this year. I say “successful” primarily in that these courses improve the skills of our members. But I can also tell you that these courses have been successful financially—strong course enrollment contributes to our chapter’s healthy treasury and so makes it possible for the chapter to sponsor programs and events that benefit us all. I am proud to note that attendance at our general meetings has been good this year, even while some the members’ employers have cut back support for attendance. The programs that we’ve presented at this year’s set of meetings have been very informative. We’ve covered topics from downtown revitalization to environmental history to roundabouts to electric transmission. I’ve learned about things outside my field. I hope you’ve been able to take advantage of these opportunities as well. Finally, I am proud that we remain a sociable group. We’ve continued the tradition of sponsoring social events alongside our professional meetings. This year we can count three significant social events—the Neenah Pub Crawl in March, the Brewers Game in May, and Marla Britton’s Open House in September. It’s great to see that as a group we are good friends as well as colleagues/competitors. We’ll continue our traditions through the waning months of 2009. We will serve the educational needs of our members through the presentation of our Real Estate Broker’s continuing education modules and through the 7-Hour USPAP Update course for appraisers. Lorraine Winchel, our point person for Stand-Alone Events, has arranged a group outing to the Fireside Theater’s holiday program on November 7. I’m looking forward to our upcoming December 3 chapter meeting in Madison. The Programs and Outreach Committee has put together very timely sessions on the subject of wind energy. This is a topic very much in the news today, both on the national scale and here in Wisconsin. A new project has recently been announced for Columbia County, while the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission just approved a project in that state which will serve Alliant Energy customers in Wisconsin. Our Wisconsin legislature has enacted a new law that puts wind energy projects under PSC, not local municipality, control. Wind energy promises to be a continuing issue for us as consumers and citizens as well as in our professional lives. But enough self-congratulation. We have much more work to do. We will face challenges in maintaining and expanding our membership through this recession. We have several members who still need to get over the hump in pursuit of their certifications or designation. We will always need members to step forward and lend a hand in arranging programs, coordinating courses, managing and contributing to the newsletter and website, etc. I hope you will join in giving back to this organization. The committee chairs are always looking for help. Finally, let me thank you for having given me the opportunity to represent you over the past year. It’s been a privilege and an honor. While I’m pleased to hand the reins over to Ernie Kretschman, I’m very proud to have had your trust. Bye for now. Hope to see you in Madison in December!
